Emil in the Soup Tureen

I think Astrid Lindgren is just wonderful.  Her rambunctious Pippi Longstocking books are pure fun! Now here's another character full of mischief and trouble and the very definition of a lovable rascal.  Emile lives on a farm with his mother and father, his little sister, Ida, the workman, Alfred, and the maid Lina.  His antics start with him getting a soup tureen stuck on his head and the lengths that his silly parents go to help him.  Lindgren ends each chapter with a teasing of the next story.
